Busy start for week-long Burnham-On-Sea yard sale for Kenyan kids

More than £1,000 was raised for an African charity on the first day of a week-long yard sale which is being held at a Burnham-On-Sea home.

Sue Stevens and friends are holding the fundraising sale at 41 Margaret Crescent, just off Burnham's South Esplanade, in aid of Educate The Kids, a charity that helps Kenyan schoolchildren.

The yard sale is being each day, from 10am-4.30pm, between May 5th-12th with scores of bargains available.

"We were delighted with the number of visitors at our first day, with over £1,000 being raised - quite incredible, " Sue told Burnham-On-Sea.com.

"A full range of household effects, from quality clothes for men, women and children, to extensive beach clothing and swimwear is being sold plus toys, African jewellery and more."

Sue added: "The people of Burnham have always been very supportive of Educate the Kids and many local people now sponsor Kenyan children through their education via our charity."
